That's about 150 light-years at the stellar debris cloud's estimated distance of 3,000 light-years

Asteroid Spotted Passing in Front of Stunning Space CloudCredit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLAA new infrared image from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) showcases the Tadpole nebula, a star-forming hub in the Auriga constellation about 12,000 light-years from Earth. The asteroid, 1719 Jens, left, tracks across the image, seen as a line of yellow-green dots in the boxes near center. A second asteroid was also observed cruising by, as highlighted in the boxes near the upper left.
